Stir well, 1/4 tsp. baking soda and 1/4 tsp. vanilla

Pour mixture over popped corn.

Fold mixture into the popped corn

Microwave on high for 1 minute then stir mixture.
Do this two more times for a total of 3 minutes in the microwave.
(If you don't stir it every minute, it will burn in the middle)

Pour carmel corn onto a cookie sheet and let cool.
I break it up with my fingers while it is cooling.
Then pop in a favorite chick-flick and munch away!

Microwave Carmel Corn

1/2 cup unpopped pop corn popped in an air popper
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margerine
1/8 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. vanilla
(Almonds or pecans if desired)

Combine sugars, butter or margerine, corn syrup and salt in a 1 quart microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high power until boiling. Stir. Continue boiling for another 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in baking soda and vanilla. Pour mixture over popped corn. (I use my largest Pyrex mixing bowl) At this point you add your nuts if you desire. Microwave on high power for one minute. Stir carmel corn. Microwave for another minute and stir. Microwave one more minute and stir again. Pour carmel corn onto a cookie sheet and let cool. As it cools, break apart with your fingers.
